Homemade Jalapeno Hummus

I will start by apologizing for any real cooks reading this blog. I am not a cook and don't pretend to be one. My photos are simple but real. My food is simple and made with love. I would enjoy hearing your comments on my recipe below but I was desperate for some hummus and didn't want to take a lot of time preparing it.

I am addicted to Sabra Jalapeno Hummus. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it was not on my shopping list. In order to quench my craving I decided to make my own. The recipe is below. It took me less than 30 min including taking the pictures :-). I also made the chips. I used P28 High Protein Wraps which I sliced and toasted in the oven for about 5 minutes a side.


  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 jalapenos, seeds and ribs removed, roughly chopped

  • I like my hummus spicy. If you’re not a spicy eater try 1 jalapeno to start

  • 2 teaspoons tahini

  • One (15.5 ounce) can chickpeas, canned, drained and rinsed

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice (or 1 lemon, juiced)

  • Optional

  • ½ teaspoon turmeric

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Pinch of black pepper


  1. Add all ingredients into your blender (VitaMix does great here!)

  2. Puree the mixture until smooth.

  3. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, and serve immediately or store, covered, and chilled for up to 1 week.

Overall this is pretty healthy and I found it very tasty.
